VILLA SASSA Hotel & Residence Wellness & Spa

Good Health in Ticino Switzerland

By Bonnie Carroll

Located in the hills of Lugano, only a few minutes from the city center, Villa Sassa Hotel, Residence & Spa is the perfect place to discover Lugano, the lake region, the mountains, and the entire Ticino region.

From the Alps to the Mediterranean, the territory of Ticino is a land with many facets to discover. A corner of Switzerland that is rich in natural contrasts, where you will discover new things to do every day, experiencing its traditions and enjoying breathtaking views.

The Spa - Feeling beautiful is essential, both inside and out

Villa Sassa offers an oasis of wellbeing and beauty. A special environment where nature and a team of professionals can care for you. Pure essences providing lovely fragrances in every space, precious oils, soft background music: the special ambiance makes it easy to just let go, as expert hands massage, pamper and cleanse the body and skin.


The Club - The utmost in wellness with the privileges of a club is not just a gym  but a club with a wide range of services, all within one unique environment: DOT Spa, Ai Giardini di Sassa Gourmet Restaurant, Sassa Bistro & Bar, hair salon, beauty centre, medical-aesthetic centre and more.

DOT.Spa

TDOT.Spa are career veterans at providing exceptional skin and body care and the knowledge they bring is priceless. I was amazed by their advanced skill and highly customized treatments with attention to each individual’s body dynamic. This is really a fine med spa and they have the most up-to-date equipment and products available. The massage, and the facial I received was possibly my best ever.

Authentic dishes are prepared and served by the food truckers, which bring their enthusiasm and the passion for local ingredients into the meal.
